DIRECTOR: Germán Berger - CHILE

Through photos, recordings, archival material, and the memories of his brothers and mother (renowned human rights lawyer Carmen Hertz), Germán Berger lovingly assembles the puzzle of who his father was and the searing impact his father’s disappearance under the Pinochet regime had on the life of his family. Germán was only a child when his father disappeared, and in the process of making the film, his own silhouetted memories are made more vivid as his relationship to his father takes on a new complexity. This intensely personal, engaging, and elegantly crafted journey is paced like a thriller, with gorgeous cinematography by Miguel Littin. “It’s cinema as memory project but also catharsis—one man’s attempt to exorcise his lingering anger at the past.”—Village Voice. (83 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Viaje a Narragonia (03).

Co-writer Roberto Brodsky, taking part in this year’s Cine-Lit Conference, will introduce the film.

In Spanish and English.
